2. I'm..What?

Autumn's P.O.V 

My mum and dad were both gone for the week. They were on vacation for their anniversary. I think they went on a cruise. I don't know but point is I didn't wanna go. I had school and didn't dare get behind in any of my classes. They would be hard to make up. So I stayed home.

I came home from my classes for the day thanking God that is was Friday and I didn't have to get up early tomorrow. I searched the fridge for something to eat. I couldn't find anything I wanted and I was really craving Nandos. But there wasn't any walking distance and I really didn't feel like driving my car to the best Nandos I know over in London. That's like a 3 hour drive. So I settled on Chicken Parmesan. I probably ate enough to feed my entire family. I honestly don't know how I ate so much and stayed thin. High metabolism I guess. It's not like I worked out. I was to busy studying. 'Why must I have no life?' I thought to myself.

A couple of hours have past and I was bored! I studied, done my homework, everything. So I decided to go through some old family photos. I always loved looking through memories. It made my happy. I grabbed a couple of shoe boxes from the hallway closet and brought them out to the living room. I grabbed some doritos and plopped down on the big fluffy couch. I smiled at each photo I looked at. We are such a happy family. I stopped at this one of my mum, dad and I when we went to the zoo. I was about 6 or 7. I had long brown hair from before I started bleaching it and big blue eyes. I had a monkey on my shoulder. I remember the zoo keeper let me hold it. My dad has brown hair like mine but it's a lot lighter. It almost looks dirty blonde. He also has big brown eyes. My mum has ginger hair with green emerald eyes. Now that I look at it, I really don't look anything like my parents. I leaned back setting the photo down and pondering through my thoughts. I sighed. Out of the corner of my eye I seen a yellow envelope sticking out on the boxes. I must have missed it earlier. I pulled it out and looked at the front. There was an Irish stamp on it but the return address has been crossed out so I couldn't see where it came from. 

I opened the envelope and pulled out a very nice looking piece of paper. It was my birth certificate. But it was from Ireland. 'Name: Autumn Marie Horan' "Horan? What?" I thought out loud.and continued to read. 'Date of Birth: September 13, 1993' Yeah, I knew that part. 'Parent's names: Bobby and Maura Horan.' 

I was confused. I put the paper down and pulled out a folded piece of paper that was in the envelope. I read it. It was an adoption paper. My adoption paper. I gasped and threw the paper across the room. I felt betrayed. My own parents have been lying to me. "I'm...adopted." I mumbled and hid my face in my hands, silently sobbing.

The phone rang causing me to pull myself together. I reached over to the side table and grabbed the phone that was sitting on the charge dock. The caller ID said that it my 'mum'. I sighed and answered it not really wanting to talk to her.

"Hi" I answer a bit cold.

"Hey, honey!" She said excited. "How are you?" I didn't answer her. I just held the phone up to my eat. "Autumn? Are you there?" Maybe she thought I couldn't hear her.

"Why didn't you tell me?" I asked with tears filling my eyes again. I really trusted my parents but all this time they lied.

"Tell you what sweetie?" 

"Don't sweetie me." I said practically yelling. "Why didn't you tell me I was adopted?!" She sat there in silence dumbfounded by what I just yelled at her. "Whatever.." I mumbled and hung up the phone. Moments later she called back. "What?" I asked harshly. 

"Your father and I are getting off at the next dock and coming home. We should be home tomorrow night. We will talk then." She said and then I hung up on her again. I stared down at the phone that was in my hands. Without even thinking about it I chucked it at the wall and it shattered into pieces. I grabbed my purse and slipped on some boots. I slammed the door and walked down the road. I did not wanna stay there much longer.
